Hello! My name is Sean McLaughlin, and I am the 4th Grade English teacher at DLS this year. First of all, welcome back to Denver Language School! This will be my third year teaching English at DLS and I am very excited for the upcoming school year! I am excited to work with your child and to help develop their English skills.
I am a Colorado native, hailing from the beautiful town of Golden. I graduated from Colorado State University in 2011 with a degree in B.A in History and Education, and am in the process of obtaining a Literacy certification from Augustana College. When I am not in the classroom I enjoy hiking with my dog, rafting, swimming, movies, trivia, and camping.
This year we will be implementing Literacy by Design. This comprehensive, research-based literacy program provides a consistent instructional path that incorporates both Reading and Writing Workshops across grade levels. During class there will be whole group, small group, and independent instruction.
All students are expected to work well with others, show their best effort, and ask for help when needed. I generally use email as my primary source of communication throughout the week, so please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
